How to encourage healthy workplace diets

Bad diets are often the result of convenience. In the workplace in particular it’s easier to get something calorific in the staff canteen or buy a supermarket premade sandwich that’s anything but healthy than it is to eat well.

Here’s how you can encourage healthy eating at your office:

Make it easy

Ensure the kitchen is well equipped and there’s enough space in the fridge so employees can bring in fresh food.

Award schemes

Join a health and wellbeing award scheme such as Health@Work’s Wellbeing Charter, which sets benchmarks around the likes of mental health, smoking, physical activity, healthy eating and alcohol.

Company lunches

Have themed healthy eating company lunches once a month, with everyone cooking something healthy and nutritious and then sharing recipes and ideas. It’s a great way of getting everyone together whilst promoting a better diet.
